Beason Out for Season; Beane Takes on Added Role

Today the Panthers announced that starting LB Jon Beason had been placed on injured reserve due to the knee injury he suffered in week 4. Add this to the growing list of attrition that seems to be adding to the Panthers' woes. Earlier in the week starting CB Chris Gamble was placed on IR due to a shoulder injury he suffered in week 4 as well. Both players will require surgery to fix torn ligaments in their respective areas of injury.

In other news, the Panthers' long-time Director of Football Operations, Brandon Beane, has been tagged with new responsibilities, given the departure of former General Manager Marty Hurney, who was relieved of his duties on Sunday. Beane will now oversee the day-to-day operations on the football end inside the office,while coordinating his efforts with Head Coach Ron Rivera and Pro Personnel Director Mark Koncz.
One of the first orders of business was to fill the roster spots left vacant by the injuries to Gamble and Beason. The Panthers have claimed LB Doug Hogue off of waivers from the Detroit Lions to fill Gamble's spot and have signed CB James Dockery to fill Beason's spot. You lose a corner, you sign an limebacker, you lose a linembacker, you sign a corner. Go figure...
